Well it’s not much of a progress report at this point, but I was able to get 15 pages done during the week, and around 7 more pages besides. While I’m not quite caught up, at least I didn’t have to cram all of those 21 pages over a single evening. That said, I’m still a little delayed, and it’s another 15 pages for next Saturday.
As I’m slowly getting to the minimum page mark for the final screenplay submission, other worries are starting to make themselves apparent. One of the main problems right now is the fact that, 45 pages in, I still haven’t hit the midpoint for the plot (an issue noted in my 20-page treatment), where it should have reached the midpoint at page 40. I might have to do something about it, which means trimming down some of Act 1, and then beefing up Act 2. Joy.
Anyway, I need to focus. Need to do the next 15 pages, then I’ll try to do necessary rewrites. And judging by the comments so far by my professor on my submissions, the latter will be needed badly. Tsk, again, it’s kind of painful having the knowledge that I suck rubbed in my face, but what can I do?
Ah, I need rest. Maybe a nap for an hour or two. I’m feeling the start of a big headache, and it’s best to preempt it by resting.
